Here are some journals that my friend Chloe Lan and I had made, during the summer of 2009.
All hand-bound and some embroidered in our old little studio in Gastown.
David Wotherspoon, friend to all, told us that he wanted us to make a special book for his lovely wife on her birthday. It was to be from him and their kids.
This was a very special book project that I did with my good friend Chloe Lan. One day I will regale you with a story of how we tried to start a bookbinding business in Downtown Vancouver, one of the most expensive places to live/rent/lease/eat/walk on. But that day is not today.
Chloe and I created a hand-bound embroidered book with their family photos, with secret fold-out pages for David and his kids to write messages for Maureen.
